Roosevelt Dime

The Roosevelt dime is familiar to everyone. It will probably be one of the first silver coins that you will find when you start metal detecting. It was made of .900 silver until 1964.

John R. Sinnock (whose initials JS are at the truncation of the neck) designed this dime showing a portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt. The design has heavier lettering and a more modernistic character than preceding types. Minted 1946 to date.
The most valuable being a 1949s.
